A very user-friendly Java implementation of interactive
additive sound synthesis is


You just "draw" the spectrum you want synthesized on-the-fly.

However, the applet does not cover all the features you ask
for, and for professional work some other package such as
Csound should be used. Note about the Mac: Netscape 4.5 on
the Mac has a (platform-dependent) bug that prevents the
above (platform-independent) Java applet from giving sound.
